Alas! It was moved outside.

Orgo Night is happening outside of Butler because band members were threatened with individual sanctions should they enter Butler Library as participants of Orgo Night. Follow our live coverage below.

We will add the script after the event. Stay tuned!

 

EDIT: The script has now been added. Stay tuned for our review tomorrow!

Chad prepares his shot.

You’re heading into finals, but the frats are heading into the Interfrat Beer Pong Conference Finals. Bwog Sports brings you the events of this week. Remember to root for your favorites!

Sig Ep: Jack and Craig (12-3, 6-1 Sig Ep) defeated Greg and Jonathan (8-7, 4-3 Sig Ep) last night. Although Jack and Craig just started playing together this season, they’ve been dominating the field. This week’s win extends their five-game win streak, and they’re looking hot going into the Interfrat Conference finals this weekend having won the Sig Ep league by two whole games. Greg and Jonathan, the second place finishers in Sig Ep, hoped to tie Jack and Craig to force a tiebreaker tonight. But, early on, Craig hit fire and then scored three additional cups, putting him and Jack up six cups to two. Greg and Jonathan never recovered and although Greg hit his redemption shot, Jonathan missed his by a mile, ending the game and their season.

Sig Nu: Tyler and Logan (2-13, 1-6 Sig Nu) upset Jake and Charles (10-5, 4-3 Sig Nu) last night. Jake and Charles, fresh off a tough win Monday night at Lamda, started the game strong, hitting three cups in a row. Tyler and Logan went cupless for most of the game, and it wasn’t until they had only two cups left that Tyler decided to go for broke with a behind-the-back toss towards the rear cup. Against all odds, the ping pong ball floated into the pool of beer and Charles was forced to drink. After that, the tide turned—Tyler and Logan hit cup after cup and Jake and Charles got sloppier and sloppier. Although neither team will be in the finals this weekend, Tyler and Logan will both be back next year after a whole summer spent improving their best strength—a high tolerance for terrible beer.

Sig Chi: Chad and Michael (6-9, 7-0 Sig Chi) beat Alex and Luke (5-10, 5-2 Sig Chi) in the final Sig Chi tournament of the semester on Tuesday. Chad and Michael have dominated the Sig Chi league this year, winning all of their games in less than 15 minutes. Alex and Luke kept it close until the final minutes, when Michael and Chad each scored on their turn and forced a re-rack. They’re seeded last going into the finals this weekend, but Michael’s game in particular has been improving in the second half of the season. He and Chad haven’t lost a game since their embarrassing loss to a pair of Carmen residents back in early March.

A flattering picture

This next senior wisdom is from Gary Kim, who has dealt with Social Media Editor Youngweon Lee’s “extraness” for six years and counting.

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Jeong Soo (Gary) Kim, SEAS, Mechanical Engineering (Minor in History), Seoul, South Korea.

Claim to fame: Not very famous. However I’m the one kid that runs shirtless in the 8th floor gym in EC at 11pm every night. What should actually make me famous is that I dealt with Youngweon’s extraness for six years and counting.

Where are you going? I’m going to sign off at least four years of my life to the Navy. I think I’ll become a Surface Warfare Officers (the guys that drive ships and shoots missiles) and hopefully be able to go to Nuclear Power School to play with reactors. Before I become a sailor, I am sticking around in NYC, and I think I will be working at an aerospace company, washing planes and giving weekend tours at the Intrepid Museum.

Classes, relationships, and more after the jump

Small girl in a big sculpture

Today’s first senior wisdom is from Shoshana Lauter, former CU Dems president, who has some thoughts on civic duty and the 72nd Street Trader Joe’s.

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Shoshana (Shosh) Lauter! ~The Barn~ @Sociology *NewYawkCity*

Claim to fame: being dems president. being the person who thinks she’s too cool/old to live on campus (and so she doesn’t but really isn’t).

Where are you going? Dr. Lauter has a nice ring to it so…medical school? is this a terrible idea? am i crazy? anyone wanna try and talk me out of this one?

What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2022?

1. This campus of ours isn’t always the brightest, especially in the doldrums of winter. smiling and being kind and warm to people is an amazingly powerful thing—both in college, and in this pretty messed up world we’re living in. the more positive and open energy you put out, the more you will receive in return.

What else has Shosh learned?

I will stand with them in their fight against tyranny

Bwogline: Rudy Giuliani told Sean Hannity that Trump repaid the Stormy Daniels hush money, despite previously claiming he knew nothing of the transaction, making us all long for the sweeter days where we didn’t know who any of these people were (BBC).

Study Tip: Just don’t. If you don’t know it by now, you probably won’t. (Or, you know, use Quizlet and make as many flashcards as humanly possible in the 24 hours before your first final).

Procrastination Tip: Classically condition your roommate to dance on a table every time you play the song below. It’s very cleansing.

Music: 

Overseen: An army of wet floor signs in the basement of Teachers College, ready to stage a coup in Prezbo’s absence.

After many delays and denials from Ann Thornton and other administrators, and much persistence from the band, CUMB has made the decision to storm Butler 209 tonight, May 3, at midnight. And it won’t be a secret this time – so no more wondering how they managed to sneak a bass drum in.

Head Manager Vivian Klotz sent an email to administrators outlining the band’s plan: enter Butler just before midnight and then take 209 at 11:59pm, as is traditional.
